Del. Cardin Reintroduces Speed Camera Reform Legislation

Posted: Updated:

MARYLAND - Speed cameras. Are you being ripped off? A recent audit performed in Baltimore revealed the error rate to be much higher than initially reported -- which is why Maryland Delegate Jon Cardin is reintroducing his speed camera reform legislation to suspend these programs statewide until the operators can be held accountable.

He made his case in front of the Environmental Matters Committee Tuesday, saying he wants each program and jurisdiction to be audited.

If passed,the bill would fine speed camera operators $1,000 for each erroneous ticket. It would also implement a verifiable double time stamped imaging system for each ticket to make sure that a driver can test the accuracy of their alleged infraction. Organizations such as AAA or speed camera watch dog organizations would also have the ability to sue a jurisdiction on behalf of their constituency for speed camera abuses.
